For Trampled Underfoot see hear: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHJ5viP0zSY 'Play it fuckin loud'




Profuse apologies for bumping this thread; another symptom of early onset dementia.
Still, no sense crying over split personality.
Wonder if it had anything to do with seeing those 'shrooms, HL:¬)

I used to be a huge Zep fan. I only recentley started being able to handle listening to them again.One thing I have to say, I had the chance to run into Jimmy Page while waiting in line to get in on the Outrider tour he did in the early 90's or late 80's, whenever that was ( see, I told you I was a fan ). Anyway, the man was EXTREMELY kind and gracious. Did not seem like a snob in any way at all. Took the time to shake the hand and chat with a total dweeb ( me )acting like Wayne in Wayne's world " I'm not worthy I'm not worthy!"

Through the magic of "re-posting"


Edit an old post of yours and, presto, it's thrown to the top. Although I will take the explanation of accidental in this case.

I know it doesn't sound very plausible, SDH, but it's true. I was preparing the accounts for the auditor, very tedious job, so I was listening to the Jan.30.78 show and writing a post for He Lives at the same time, as you do. I was experimenting with some html on that old Zep post, which I'd chosen at random not noticing that it was a first post and of course once you hit the old submit button, there ain't no turning back. Hence the egg all over the fizog scenario. You know how I revere this august establishment and would never do anything to bring it into disrepute, but if you see fit to banish me to the sin bin, I will endeavour to accept my punishment in good grace.

The "Sin Bin" shall not yet count you among its inhabitants. I feel that all contriubutors here be granted at least one Mulligan (kind of ties into the golf-themed hijack above). Fear not, for who among us has not made the occaisional "faux pas"? Pick up your ball and take another swing.

Led Zeppelin tickets £83,000 bid. Sorry, link did`nt work, but some guy from scotland paid £83,000 for 2 tickets. How much (assuming everyone was alive from your favourite period) would you pay to see the Dead.

i dont think i would pay 20 bucks to see them, plant singing whole lotta love now seems kinda disturbing. there music is meant for young folk, to see them at this point is a mockery of what was.

yeah, I allways thought it was shameless how they didn't even say " traditional arranged by..." like most people do. Bring it on home and In My Time of Dyin are two of THE most shameless ones I know as the arrangements aren't even hardly changed. But on the other hand show me ONE bluesman who has sang Stagger Lee/Stack - o - Lee etc etc, or CC Rider or a MILLION others who didn't claim to write the song themselves. Not that it makes it right because plagorism is plagiarism.

They sure knew how to nick a good tune, blue. I wonder if their consciences are troubling them because I understand they're donating all the proceeds of their reunion concert to charidee. The cd sales should make their dotage easier though.

Well, I think that may be more in the way of thanks to Ahmet and his widow (who reportedly approached Plant about doing the concert). Don't get me wrong - I enjoy me some Zep and certainly "rediscovered" them with the release of How The West Was Won (as I did the Beatles with the Volume 1-3 releases with demos, rarities, etc - suprising admission, huh?). A friend in the "biz" sent me the link and I know this topic has been discussed here before. All that said, if I had a chance to see them, I'd go (assuming money were no object).

Accidental bump?

That excuse may have worked for Spitzer, but I'm afraid that's as far as it goes.

Alan - thanks for that. I need little excuse to blast out Trampled Underfoot - one of my favourite Zep tunes. You've probably already seen this film that the Old Grey Whistle Test used to accompany the song.

Do you remember how Whistle Test used to marry up all kinds of weird visuals with songs when there wasn't any actual footage of the band to show? The precursor of the music video definitely!

Oh, yes, the discs are ready to go in the post. So a small package of value will come to you shortly, as they say.

Hi Rob. Best news for days. I'm still under the weather, but the outlook definitely just got brighter. Multiple thanks.

The clip I remember from the OGWT had cartoon footage - Betty Boop I think. Maybe it was another song. I always preferred the toony stuff.

The Dead could have played this one and let Pig do the vocals. It's basically Zeppelin's 'Lovelight'.
